Donald Trump: White House Staff Hated 'Wacky Omarosa'

"I think that Omarosa unfortunately has undercut her own credibility", Conway said, saying the author had previously given "a glowing appraisal of Donald Trump".

"Nobody even told me about it", Trump says in the recording of a phone call that Newman says is from the day after she was sacked.

The latest barbs from Trump fanned the flames of conflict with Manigault Newman, which has virtually consumed the White House for the past several days.

"Nobody even told me about it", the male voice can be heard saying.

This time it's a recording of President Donald Trump admitting he didn't know she was sacked from the White House.

But there remain questions surrounding her recording in the White House's Situation Room, where the nation's top national security issues are discussed. In the recording, John can be heard telling Omarosa that if she chooses to walk away without any trouble, her reputation won't be damaged. The AP has independently listened to the recording with Kelly.

That was the juiciest bite about Trump, but the true marvel was the interview itself, as the Omarosa got testy with Guthrie on air for keeping her past the agreed upon time limit. "It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration". She offered no evidence. We will keep you posted on any updates as they continue throughout the day.

With new prey in her talons, Manigault Newman gave voice to numerous problems that have roiled the West Wing.


The Situation Room is a secure conference room located in the basement of the White House, where people are required to leave their electronic devices outside before entering.

He added Manigault may have breached security clearance protocol and broken the law by recording in the Situation Room. "Not only is it not typical, something like this is unprecedented".

A year ago, Mr Trump refused to condemn outright white supremacists, following the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, at which a female counter-protester was killed by a neo-Nazi sympathiser.

In audio NBC published online, Kelly tells Manigault Newman his concerns involve the "use of government vehicles and some other issues", and adds, "there's some money issues and other things, but from my view the integrity issues are very serious".

Trump reacted Saturday to Manigault Newman's media tour before the release of her coming tell-all book, calling her a "low-life".

She also released what is said to be a secretly recorded tape of White House chief of staff John Kelly firing her.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told TMZ the act showed a lack of character and that her newly released book "Unhinged" is full of lies.

"First of all, like I said, I'm the only African-American there".
